Finding Treasure.....

This, of course, is subject to opinion. GoodWill just opened up near us and can't tell you how exciting that is. Sounds weird doesn't it. Yesterday my "find" of the day was this.....

"Adjustable Crochet Fork" which translates into a pin lace loom. It cost .99 (what a steal) along with some crochet hooks, bamboo knitting needles and a couple books on knitting. I truly DO NOT need any more books, or hooks, or knitting needles, but who can resist a deal like that ; )

On the subject of books (and magazines) I've finally reached the point where I HAVE to start thinning what I've acquired. My goal is to list 10 magazines and/or books on my Destash Etsy every day. Don't know if I'll be able to meet this, but I'm gonna give it a shot.

Creatively I have been making wire wrapped rings and learning weaving. Nothing like adding another creative outlet, right? Well at least I can say that it's stays within the realm of fiber : D I'll just group it in with the crochet, knitting, spinning, sewing category(s) and I should be On that note here is an excellent site I found for learning weaving and playing with pot holder looms and spool knitting, Tottie Talks Crafts and her Etsy with lots of cool patterns and other stuff Noreen Crone-Findlay.

I'm also learning how to use a new camera. I'm hoping this will improve my photographing skills. You should start seeing more pictures (yeah!).

And a cake for Jimmy's Birthday last weekend. Can you say chocolate...

Hand made all of the roses and leaves out of white and milk chocolate modeling clay.

That's it for now. Time to get dinner started.
